Pennsylvania DSL petition?

I read on Verizon's website some time ago that Pennsylvania Residents could 'petition' for DSL installation in certain areas if enough Residents on that road would sign up for the service... Anyone have more information on this?I can not seem to find anything on their site now.

I am planning on moving again and I do NOT want to go back to dial up. I also asked this in the Verizon Tech Support area but of course got a canned response to check Verizon's site for Availability and that the forum was for current customers only blah blah blah.

IS this what you are looking for?

»www22.verizon.com/foryourhome/bfrr/

The Pennsylvania legislature recently enacted a new law instructing Verizon and other telephone companies to give their Pennsylvania customers an opportunity to complete a Bona Fide Retail Request (BFRR) for DSL service. This program may speed DSL deployment to your immediate area, but it also requires that you commit to purchase DSL service for a year. Under this program, if 50 customers or 25% of the customers in your nearby community, whichever is less, commit to purchase DSL for a minimum of one year, Verizon will deploy DSL in that area within 12 months. Verizon will make up to 40 BFRR deployments each year

Now we need one for FIOS..hehe jk.

Does this have anything to do with the politicians letting Verizon off the hook for the tax breaks they got for all the broadnband they promised and didn't provide?

And the right people would be? I really need this DSL installed at this location since I will be doing work from there, so all tips are welcome.
